PETALING JAYA: Police are verifying information that the man in the “balcony sex” case has left the country.
Brickfields police chief Asst Comm Muhammad Azlee Abdullah said there was a possibility that the suspect was gone given the fact he was a foreigner.
“The longest you can stay in Malaysia is a month. But we don’t know for sure if he’s out of the country or not,” he said.
ACP Muhammad Azlee added that the police believed he could still be in the country.
“That is why we need to verify everything first,” he said.
Last week, the male in a video recording of a couple having intercourse on the balcony of an apartment in Bangsar South was identified.
ACP Muhammad Azlee said based on information from the public, the man was a foreigner in his 30s renting the apartment with his partner.
Police are also investigating the person who recorded the video and to find out the exact location where the filming took place.
The case is being investigated under Sections 377D, 297 and 294 of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.
The 30-minute sex video went viral on social media after it was recorded by a tenant from another apartment nearby.
